Although I've lived in NJ most of my life, I only learned about this castle about 5 years ago and finally took the time to visit. The castle was cheerfully decorated for Christmas, which added to the charm. There are many period furnishings and decorative objects around the castle. The signs provide interesting insight into Mr. Lambert, as well as... More

Never knew there was a castle in Paterson; however, due to poor family management, family heirlooms are no longer inside. Focus is on the artwork inside the castle instead of it's grandeur. Don't expect much. Very safe area since police substation is on grounds. View of NYC obscured due to overgrown trees. Deer come out of the woods in this... More

The "castle" itself is a nice little attraction. If you are in the neighborhood and have sometime to spare, it's worthwhile spending half an hour or so. They also host events, We recently went there on a Sunday afternoon to see an Opera which was a wonderful experience.

Who would think there would be a castle in NJ? I enjoyed the history behind the castle but would have loved it more if the family had not auctioned off most of the artifacts that give the home it's full story.

We visited Lambert Castle when I was looking for something to do to entertain the in laws. The castle is on top of a high peak that overlook NYC so the view is spectacular. As we walked in and took the tour we were impressed by the rich heritage and the world largest spoon collection. We never knew this place... More

I went to Lambert Castle for a photo shoot. It was very nice, as this is an iconic place in New Jersey. They have parking available.

Very interesting local history lesson. This is the home of a wealthy mill owner during the 1800s. They also have a few rooms set up with other local historic items. We learned a lot. The view from the castle is really quite spectacular, looking over Paterson all the way to NYC. Free parking and inexpensive entrance fee. A nice day... More
